  • From Our Friends at the Save Our Beach Organization



    It's actually easier than you think to be a little green.

    Please consider sharing these simple steps with your friends and family. If everyone who reads this, tells one person who tells another person who tells another person..well, I'm sure you get the idea!    For our planet to be healthy for future generations, we ALL can be just a little greener. And it's easy! 


    Here are some simple and inexpensive things I've recently changed in my life:


    1.  I always try to carry a reusable water bottle with me (I keep them filled in my refrigerator and just grab one on the way out the door) so I no longer use single use water bottles (even though single use water bottles can be recycled).


    2.  I now have a glass straw thanks to Glass Dharma (if it breaks, Glass Dharma will replace it free of charge) and I keep it in a hemp carrying case in my glovebox so I no longer use plastic single use straws. If you use the code Save Our Beach, Glass Dharma will donate 20% of your purchase to our cause! NOTE: If you are paying by PayPal when using your "Save Our Beach" coupon code, make sure you enter and apply the coupon code BEFORE clicking on the "Checkout with PayPal" button.


    3.  I no longer use single use plastic grocery bags (Vons/Albertsons/Ralphs) - I now bring my own reusable bags thanks to The Tote Buddy  to the grocery store and I can store up to 10 bags inside the adorable bag holder/organizer. If you use the code SAVEOURBEACH, The Tote Buddy will take $1 off and donate 20% of your purchase to our cause!


    4. I now take my printer cartridges to Costco to refill rather than take to recycling - Costco fills them for 1/3 of the cost of a new cartridge and I'm creating less trash.


    5. I no longer buy single use batteries, I only buy rechargeable batteries and then simply recharge them (batteries can be recharged up to 250 times!).


    6. I no longer leave my cell phone plugged in overnight charging as it only takes an hour or two to recharge (saving me electricity).


    7. I changed all of the light bulbs in my house to energy efficient (saves me money on my electric bill by using ¼ of the electricity).


    8. While running the bath or shower waiting for the water to heat up, put a large bucket under to catch the water. Use this water for plants, pets, cleaning etc.


    9. Before I go anywhere, I make myself think about walking or biking instead of getting into the car. And before I get into my car I map where I'm going to save fuel.




    10. Participate in our "Walk For The Beach" September 17th ~ it's only 2.25 mile walk from jetty to jetty in Seal Beach and it's a $25 donation (and you score a "Keep It Clean" tshirt!) 

    Click Here For Walk For The Beach Entry Form and you'll be part of the California Coastal Cleanup!


    WHAT IS COASTAL CLEANUP DAY? California Coastal Cleanup Day, an annual beach and inland waterway cleanup, is the state's largest volunteer event. In 2010, over 82,500 volunteers removed more than 1.2 million pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches, lakes, and waterways. When combined with the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by Ocean Conservancy and taking place on the same day, California Coastal Cleanup Day becomes part of one of the largest volunteer events in the world. 

    CA Coastal Cleanup Day Too!


    Thanks for playing along ~ and please remember if you have any used wrapping paper, soda pop tabs, or jewelry beads you no longer need, I can use them in my classes I teach at schools and camps!

    Thanks again for supporting what I do ~

    Quietly Changing Our World - With Your Help 

    Posted Aug 28, 2011, 9:48 AM by KaSO CPP

    t its July 12 meeting, the CSU Board of Trustees increased tuition by an additional 12 percent effective in the Fall 2011 term. The board’s action was precipitated by legislative passage last month of a final state budget that cuts state funding to the CSU by $650 million for 2011-12. The legislature had already approved a $500 million cut to the CSU in March and added $150 million more when the governor could not get the two-thirds support needed to extend several temporary taxes that expired June 30. In addition, the enacted budget package includes the possibility of an additional cut of $100 million, to be determined by the Director of the Department of Finance in December 2011 based on whether, and to what extent, state revenues fall short of budget act assumptions.


    The 12 percent increase will raise tuition by $294 per semester for full-time undergraduate students, $339 for credential program participants and $360 for graduate students. One-third of the revenue from the tuition increase will be allocated for financial aid. With an increase in State University Grants, Cal Grants, Pell Grant awards, funding for work/study and newly expanded federal tax credits, nearly half of all CSU undergraduates will be helped with these additional costs. You should consult with campus financial aid officers to determine your own eligibility.


    For Cal Poly Pomona fees, please refer to:


    Because of the precarious budget situation, the Board will review at its meeting in November 2011 whether adequate funds have been provided by the Legislature and the Governor in the Budget Act, and to determine whether any additional fee increases will be required.


    The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. However, fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. CSU has reserved the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun.
